Mystic Messenger Party Grade Guide

Hey guys~! I finally had a convenient save file to test out what happens when you do the Final Day’s party with different amounts of guests. The biggest difference is how many guests you have will determine if you get the Good End or the Normal End. Both are fun to watch and give a different CG. : ]

But I was also curious what grades you get for different numbers of guests. I can now post a confirmed chart, with screenshots of the dialogue boxes that appear with your letter grade.

If your guest list has 15 or more people you get an A.
Even if you have over 30 people lol.
mystic messenger party grade

12, 13, and 14 guests gives you a B.

8, 9, 10, and 11 guests gives you a C.

You need 10 guests or more to get the Good End.
Anything below 10 sends you to the Normal End. Kind of odd that Cheritz put the cutoff right in the middle of the same letter grade.

4, 5, 6, 7 guests gives you a D.

And ZERO, 1, 2, 3 guests gives you an F.
You still get the Normal End. The game assumes you still invited some people, just not very many lol.

…and there you have it!
I hope this guide was helpful! It satisfied my curiosity anyways,
haha. ^_^

kenka bancho otome
GO!!!! vote here!

Spike Chunsoft’s twitter is hosting a vote for a few titles that are being considered for a release on Steam. This is the only mention of a localization of Kenka Bancho Otome we’ve seen, so if you want it, go and vote!! I bet if we make a enough noise, they won’t be able to ignore us!

The vote is pretty close right now, so let’s close the gap and make it a win for otome! : D
Even if it’s not your cup of tea, spreading word and your support is much appreciated~❀

Mystic Messenger ending theme – English ver.

So Mystic Messenger has a pretty English-language ending theme. I’ve decided to share a bit of it~

I felt it was a shame that the game only has the Korean version of the ending theme, so I am uploading the English version. However, it has been edited to match the length of the one found in the game. To listen to entire song you will need to purchase the OST found in the game’s special edition RFA VIP set.

Hopefully Cheritz will make a more affordable soundtrack available soon. They released soundtracks for their previous game, Nameless, several times, so I’m optimistic. If several months go by and Cheritz has made no move to release another OST, then I will consider uploading the opening and ending theme in full.

(Edit: I posted the lyrics to the full song, even though the file plays just the first part.)

“Like the Sun in the Sky”
Composed by DoubleTO
Arranged by DoubleTO
Lyrics by Cheritz
Vocal by Han, Sirius

Like the sun in the sky I’m always here
brightening the world you breath and live in
Anywhere you go you can feel my gentle love

I still remember your face and your smile
As vivid as the blue water

There’s a tree standing alone we promised to
decorate. I can wait ’til you come.

If you ever feel the cold wind and you hide
in your home alone
Look to the sky I am always here with you

Your loneliness can blind you to the joys
of your day
Come out I’m the rays of the sun keeping
your heart calm ever more

You still remember my voice and my scent
As lucid as your dreams last night

I wish the snow from the sky lights up your
windows in winter and fills you up with hope
once again.

If you ever feel the cold wind and you hide
in your home alone
Look to the sky I am always here with you

Your loneliness can blind you to the joys
of your day
Come out I’m the rays of the sun keeping
your heart calm ever more

(Instrumental)

All the things that you said to hurt me again
I know that it’s just not who you really are
No matter what you do I will keep shining
towards you like the bright sun above

If you ever feel the cold wind and you hide
in your home alone
Look to the sky I am always here with you

Your loneliness can blind you to the joys
of your day
Come back to my arms I am still standing
here for you

…Forever

~

Feel free to share the lyrics, but please don’t remove the song’s credits at the beginning. Those guys should be properly credited for making a pretty song. : )

Mystic Messenger opening theme lyrics

Hey guys, I transcribed the lyrics for the opening theme to Cheritz’s new game, Mystic Messenger. Feel free to share and re-post this, but please don’t remove the song’s credits at the beginning. Those guys should be properly credited for making a cool song. : )

cheritz, mystic messenger, soundtrack, ost, lyrics
by the way this is a quick snapshot of the inside of the jewel case, the back-paper behind the CDs.❀

Also, do not ask me to upload the full song online. If several months go by and Cheritz makes no effort to sell another soundtrack, then I will share it. You can listen to the first half of the song on their Youtube video. But it’s worth it to listen to the whole thing, so lets hope they make it available for purchase later on for those that don’t have the money for the beautiful, and expensive, VIP Gamer Package.

Anyways, enjoy singing along to this upbeat song~! ^_^

“Mysterious Messenger”
Composed by DoubleTO
Arranged by DoubleTO
Guitar by Namhoon Gwon
Lyrics by Cheritz
Vocal by Han

(I just got your messages)
Every morning I wake up to the same sweet sound
Picking up my cell phone that’s been ringing

Wondering what’s new? What have I missed?
I was offline
Anyway I will end up hearing your story

How are you doing today?
Same questions every single day
Please know that I’m not good at asking you.

Your face lights up laughing from the jokes
I’ve made
You would never guess that I am suspicious

(Ticktok Ticktok time is running out.
What are you doing now?)
I don’t know where you are,
Don’t even know your name
They think I’m crazy. My heartbeat goes up.
Words cannot express my love for you.

Did you get mysterious messages?
It’s a piece of the puzzle.
The letters are the only clues to solving
hidden mysteries

Did you get mysterious messages?
If you can feel the trace, that is me. Call me out
I’ve been watching you from the start

Remember yesterday how we texted on and
on and on
I have never met someone so pure like you

Imagine something new that is fully out of
this world
You and me let’s marry in the space station

(Mystical Messages)
Mystic clue of this puzzle

(Mystical Messenger)
It’s too dangerous, Don’t come close
You think I’m crazy. My heartbeat goes up.
No matter what I must follow my heart.

Did you get mysterious messages?
It’s a piece of the puzzle.
The letters are the only clues to solving
hidden mysteries

Did you get mysterious messages?
If you can feel the trace, that is me. Call me out
I’ve been watching you from the start

(Instrumental)

Someone set us up to play in this secret game
(Keep it cool, Don’t react) Trust in your judgement
Did you see the messages I’ve been sending you?
Open your eyes, see the light

Don’t fall for any of his party invites.

Did you get mysterious messages?
It’s a piece of the puzzle.
The letters are the only clues to solving
hidden mysteries

If you get mysterious messages, stand by me
hold my hand, don’t lose hope, you know why
I will never leave you alone

The game is quality visual novel, and the english release will actually include content from not only the first game but the fandisk as well! There’s a lot of good artwork and fun minigames to be had, so please support!
Even if you aren’t interested in the game, just a dollar to support the visual novel community would be really appreciated too. : D

For those wishing for better add-on’s to the backer tiers, they just posted some nice stuff. It’s really great for those that want to get a physical copy of the soundtrack CD or the artbook in physical print, among other things. : )

Spread the word about this kickstarter! Thanks!

Unboxing Kanato & Shuu – Union Creative figures

They came in the mail yesterday!! And dear lord the parcel was HUGE. (It didn’t help I had Alter’s 1/8 Archer in there too, hehe.) btw important announcement at the bottom of this post. please notice! orz

Like seriously! these boxes are a bit over a foot tall! They look nice, but man they are big.

diabolik lovers kanato shuu union creative menshdge figure

Honestly, I like this type better than window-box display. I want big pictures, not some hard-to-see-thru-layers-of-plastic nonsense. I wish these had official artwork from the game though. Well, at least they aren’t tainted by the anime renditions (not that the anime looks bad! I really like it! I’m just so picky with printed art.)

diabolik lovers kanato shuu union creative menshdge figure

The front opens, um, like a door. If that makes any sense.

diabolik lovers kanato shuu union creative menshdge figure

I lifted them out of the box and pulled off the top clear case. The bases are to the left of each one.

diabolik lovers kanato shuu union creative menshdge figure

diabolik lovers kanato shuu union creative menshdge figure

Yup, weird triangle bases. Kanato’s has four pegs, and Shuu’s has two pegs. Also that’s Shuu’s jacket. It slips on and off easily, really cool!

Ok well, here they are~

diabolik lovers kanato shuu union creative menshdge figure
And omg omg- ERMAHGERD! I was SHOCKED at how much more I liked them in real life.

I really anticipated these figures, but was still a little unsure if they’d look as awesome as my other scales. My stupid photos don’t really do them justice (they really don’t! For some reason their shirts look a little blue but they aren’t.) They style feels different than how Alter does their figures, but I think they are just as impressive!

diabolik lovers kanato shuu union creative menshdge figure

There’s a lot of little details, like the seams and simulated stitching and stuff. I like how they took the time to give them different skintones, since Kanato is supposed to be noticeably pale. They even painted their fingernails?!

diabolik lovers kanato shuu union creative menshdge figure

diabolik lovers kanato shuu union creative menshdge figure

It’s a shame Union couldn’t add in the cord that should go from the mp3 player on his choker to his ear. He’s obviously supposed to be holding an earbud, like the official artwork.

diabolik lovers kanato shuu

So pretty… I’m glad Union used the game’s art as a reference. They obviously used the anime as a reference as well, and I can’t really blame them. It’s hard taking something that’s 2D and making it 3D, especially when the source artwork is really traditional with a lot of complicated shading. The anime has pretty consistent imagery of the characters from many angles, makes it easier I think. These figures are a pretty good mix of both influences.πŸ™‚

And now some pics of them together! Yay!

diabolik lovers kanato shuu union creative menshdge figure

Oh and Kanato’s bear can be shifted out of his arms. Actually, I had to move it to get the packing plastic out. Teddy (not pictured, oops) looks pretty good on his own despite having the necessary indentations.

diabolik lovers kanato shuu union creative menshdge figure

I kind of want to make him hold a watermelon or something…

wait a minute…

I have an idea-

diabolik lovers kanato shuu union creative menshdge figure

AHEM. Moving on. >.>

Where was I? Oh yeah, I was also surprised by how big the figures themselves were. Union didn’t really list a scale, and I didn’t look at the height in cm ahead of time.

diabolik lovers kanato shuu union creative menshdge figure uta no prince

DEFINITELY NOT 1/8 SCALE OMG. Look at how they tower over my Uta no Prince 1/8 scales! The idols have been dwarfed! X’D

So are they kind of like 1/7 then? I dunno but they look good from across my room. Even amidst all the clutter and stuff I keep on my dresser. ^_^

diabolik lovers kanato shuu union creative menshdge figure

YAY MORE CUTIES TO THE PILE!!! XDD

diabolik lovers kanato shuu union creative menshdge figure

diabolik lovers kanato shuu union creative menshdge figure

So that’s the Diabolik Lovers figures of Kanato and Shuu Sakamaki, brought to us by Union Creative in their mensHdge line. Here’s hoping they sold well enough to get more characters ;_;

Amnesia: Memories Keepsake Box

Estelle is showing off the newly released Amnesia: Memories -Remnants of Love Keepsake Box-

amnesia memories le limited edition english keepsake box shin
It just arrived direct from Iffy’s online store! The ship fee wasn’t great but it came in fast and secure! (Not all companies seem to pack correctly… I’m looking at you Goodsmile Co. >_> ) The cover is lovely and will make a nice display piece on the top of my bookshelf xD. I chose to buy the “box only” set since I decided to support the Vita version of the game, sold separately on PSN.

Let’s open it up!

amnesia memories le limited edition english keepsake box shin
The first thing we see is a stack of coasters, featuring the “romance-able” boys in the game. I was pleasantly surprised to see these are more than just a light piece of cardboard.

amnesia memories le limited edition english keepsake box coasters
They are thick paper over metal (much like a button/badge) with cork bottoms! These coasters are the real deal! 8D You can use them for your drink or just let them decorate your table or dresser. I love printed artwork that can actually be used around the room. Plus artwork of the usual characters sprites is something I’ve been missing from my collection. Love them!

Remove the first tray and you will find the game’s soundtrack CD.

amnesia memories le limited edition english keepsake box soundtrack cd
It comes in its own jewel case, which doesn’t always happen with bonus discs. The artwork on the outside and inside is really sleek and professional. The little things really count.

amnesia memories le limited edition english keepsake box soundtrack cd
I love listening to a game’s soundtrack after playing, since you can re-live the world of the game just by hearing the familiar sound. And there’s always at least one track I’ll be addicted to, so having it on disc is really convenient. :]

The next layer has the artbook. It’s of decent size and excellent print quality. Estelle is holding it open for us~

amnesia memories le limited edition english keepsake box artbook
Inside is various color art, character profiles, game cgs, and surprisingly- rough drafts and settings. The book’s layout is really well put together. I only wish that a few artworks didn’t get inevitably sucked into the book’s spine. Still a great book though; artwork is a main staple of visual novels after all.

And with that we’ve reached the bottom of the box. Thanks for reading an- wait what?

amnesia memories le limited edition english keepsake box ukyo
What is THAT.

O.O
It’s a pillowcase. An INCREDIBLY STUNNING body pillow case!

amnesia memories le limited edition english keepsake box body pillow case
OMFG LOOK.
look at those colors! It’s so vivid! and the resolution is excellent! I’ve never seen a pillow case this good. Srsly, good dakimakura are ridiculously expensive so I haven’t owned one- until now! Definitely needs some ironing tho XDD

Let’s just get this to the iron… eh? Hey, now Estelle…

amnesia memories le limited edition english keepsake box pillow toma
Get off the handsome boys for a second!πŸ˜„

Btw it’s 100% polyester and comes with care instructions. Use a COOL iron or else you will permanently damage the fabric!! I used a damp cloth under my iron to try and steam out the creases (it also acts as a buffer between the iron and the case.) It will take a lot of patience to get them out. Fair warning!

Ah~ there we go. The pillow fits right in! LOVE IT 8DDD

amnesia memories le limited edition english keepsake box body pillow case gift plush
Haha! Oh no, poor Ukyo. That beachball has escaped the others’ hands, much to their dismay!πŸ˜„ I’m glad the image is so cute without being too racy, as pillow art often is. Srsly, you have to see this in real life, the colorful setting is enchanting. x3

I was surprised when Iffy announced this set for preorder, not too long before its release no less. They must have had this in their back pocket for quite awhile. The Limited Edition Keepsake Box is probably the BEST video game LE I own, despite the fact there wasn’t a physical copy of the game. The set was $40, a pretty good price considering the quality of what you get, so I can feel a little better about paying the $30 for a digital only game (but that is an entirely different topic.) They’ve really done a great job letting the international market get their hands on official Otomate goods, FINALLY.

So support otome games and related merchandise and consider getting yourself a set of Amnesia goods! I highly recommend this box! ^_^
